Kevin Smith to direct Johnny Depp and their daughters in Yoga Hosers

08.19.2014

Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith, that is one pairing I never expected to see on the big screen. But, it looks like we will be seeing it as the pair will team up on screen for Smith's YOGA HOSERS. The action comedy begins principal photography this week and will also star the offspring of the pair, Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith.

Kevin Smith recently indicated that The Weinstein's passed on financing CLERKS III which may be why he elected to make YOGA HOSERS his next project. With his horror film TUSK wrapping, Smith will also be bringing the entire cast of that film over for YOGA HOSERS including Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach and Harley Morenstein. The film will also feature Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes.

Here's the synopsis.

Hosers, written by Smith, centers on 15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith) who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. When an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe (Depp) to fight for their lives with, according to the producers, “all seven Charkas, one Warrior Pose at a time.”

YOGA HOSERS is described as an action adventure "comic book" movie and is the second chapter in Smith's True North Trilogy following TUSK. The trilogy are steeped in Canadian myths and culture. I am not sure what to make of the project but the inclusion of Depp definitely raises my interest to see just what the hell Smith has up his sleeve. It certainly marks the biggest movie star Smith has had in one of his films since Ben Affleck and Matt Damon headlined DOGMA.

YOGA HOSERS has no release date but you can guarantee that Depp will lock this one in for a wide release.

I can't believe the Weinsteins passed on Clerks 3 and that this crap is the follow-up. I've never said a bad thing about Kevin Smith or his films, but this sounds like total shit.

Isn't Depp in Tusk?

And I thought this movie was about that real story of a yoga guy who had some crazy old expensive artifact in his house?

Tusk, Yoga and moose are all tied together. Justin Long will be in scenes with the two girls from Yoga in Tusk, and those scenes will be revisited in Yoga as well.

Johnny Depp might be the glue that ties all three of these movies together. Being a cameo in two and a main character in Yoga. I bet he dies by the hands of the Moose in the third movie.

The premise sounds kind of interesting, but I get this tingling feeling that Kevin Smith may have ripped off some of the concept from Grant Morrison's Vimanarama.

If I ever formed a band, or a comedy troupe, I'd definitely name it The Jealous Dicks. And our first album/show will be called 'Let's Talk About Assholes'.

I love the concept

but Kevin Smith as a director makes me nervous. I really hated RED STATE: it blatantly ripped off Tarantino and the Coen Bros. and did it really, really badly.

Sounds weird, which means it should be awesome

I'm a Kevin Smith Fanboy. This sounds awesome. I like that he's doing crazy, original movies. These plots are nuts. It's exactly what we need in cinemas during an age of unoriginality.

I also would love to see him make a comic book movie though. I would love to see him collaborate with the "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" guys too

I don't get the whole "starts shooting this week" part. When they started shooting today. Why not just be like "WE ON THIS TO DAY"?

Also Depp is totally in Tusk as the same character.
I'm interested, the smodcast episode that a couple things for this are pulled from is pretty great.

Actually smith had the viewaskewnivers before Edgar Wright. Clerks, mall rats, chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent bob strike back, and Clerks 2 all take place in the same universe with a lot of the same actors.

And Edgar Wright didn't use the same characters in any of his movies (actors, yes, characters, no).

haha because Wright invented the thematic trilogy? Wright himself was paying homage to Kieslowski and the Three Colours Trilogy.

As a born and raised Manitoban, I'm glad to see our lovely province serve as the backdrop for this film... too bad they won't actually shoot it there.

You can actually see him briefly in the Tusk trailer, I think he plays a border patrol agent. Hard to miss what with the EPIC beard and all.
